Corydoras paleatus
Peppered corydoras, Peppered catfish
breeding notes

BREEDING: Not too hard to breed at all - C. paleatus is a substrate spawner (usually in mops, or the aquarium glass). A well conditioned pair will usually spawn after a large water change (50% or so) of somewhat cooler, well-oxygenated water. The fry will take newly hatched artemia once their yoke sacs are used up.

Have you bred Corydoras paleatus? Why not fill in a breeding questionaire?

Sorry no records.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Should I have water movement in my tank? Fish from faster flowing rivers love swimming against a current - fish from vegetation choked marshes do not. With todays box filters it is quite easy to get some good water flow for strong swimmers like Rainbowfish, whilst a spray bar attachment can completely remove this for gentler swimmers like Gouramis
